Plan 9 from Outer Space (originally titled Grave Robbers from Outer Space, or simply known as Plan 9) is a 1959 American science fiction thriller film written and directed by Ed Wood and released by Distributors Corporation of America (as Valiant Pictures). The film stars Gregory Walcott, Mona McKinnon, Tor Johnson and Maila "Vampira" Nurmi. The film bills Bela Lugosi posthumously as a star, although silent footage of the actor had been shot by Wood for another, unfinished project just before Lugosi's death in 1956.
The plot of the film involves extraterrestrial beings who are seeking to stop humanity from creating a doomsday weapon that would destroy the universe. In the course of doing so, the aliens implement "Plan 9." It's a scheme to resurrect the Earth's dead as what modern audiences would call zombies (but called "ghouls" in the film itself) causing chaos in order to get the planet's attention. This colorized version video movie is of good quality and interesting as well. The colorization looks better than most and appears both rich and fairly natural. Believe it or not, there is an audience of film buffs who actually like the "Colorization" process in old black and white films.
